Dear AG Parents,
I welcome you to Alexander Graham (AG) Middle School and to another successful school year. As a national Schools to Watch middle school, we are committed to our students and parents for academic excellence, developmental responsiveness, and social equity. Our School Leadership Team has developed a school-wide Honor Code with a testament of Bulldog Honor Above All as our guiding vision for the values of Honesty, Integrity, and Responsibility in all that we say, write, and do every day. Along with your partnership, we will further advance our school of excellence for the development of all AG students.
I have three core beliefs about middle grades education:
- Student Development and Achievement is our primary purpose and we must be accountable for all students' learning and growth at high levels
- Parent Engagement supports and maintains the educational process while setting a personal and character development standard for students
- The Teaching and Learning Environment is the pathway to establish positive school experiences and to motivate students to dream big and work hard
These beliefs guide my educational decisions and help me set a foundation on which to develop school improvement goals. Combined with good communication, I have found these beliefs to be of value in supporting a child-centered learning environment. I welcome all ideas, suggestions, and opportunities to enhance the educational environment and culture in our school.
I believe in an open door policy and I look forward to meeting each of you. Please be involved and support our PTO efforts. You may contact me by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 980-343-5810.
It is a privilege to be your Principal at Alexander Graham Middle School. I look forward to a great school year. GO BULLDOGS!
